RAHIM YAR KHAN: The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam senator and secretary general Abdul Ghafoor Haidri has said the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is not an electoral alliance.
Speaking at a presser here on Friday night during a visit to the district, Mr Haidri blamed the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government’s policies for the rising exchange rate of dollar.
To a question, he said the JUI-F leadership would decide whether the party would contest the by-elections and next general elections independently or as part of an alliance.
He said many PTI leaders were new to t e politics and did not face jails and floggings so far, adding that such hardships were essential to any political movement.
He said that in politics one could even be hanged, so the PTI leaders should stop crying and show political tolerance.
